Pros

Great brand, solid benefits, well intentioned people "practices".

Cons

ENORMOUS amounts of change in a short window, with only more to come. Leadership is absolutely well intentioned, but the process to drive change is scattered and inconsistent. Several new leaders come in bright eyed and excited about driving much needed change, but they often get bogged down in meetings and deliverables. Next thing you know, they've been onboard long enough to fall into the same old same old culture of survival.

Advice to Management

Slow down. Look at the talent that you do have. Stop belabouring the point that that the talent you need isn't there. They may very well be, but you're killing them slowly.

    140 years of experience, good financial strength

    Advice to Management

    Our Brand was built on relationships, reliablility and loyalty -- if you don't continue some level of continuity internally (which does not seem to be the case lately), then you will undermine this strength. We are becoming too top-heavy - leat the mid-level talent develop and lead.
